Footloose! Footloose! Kick off those dancin' shoes!

SH Line Producer | 10:37 UK time, Monday, 14 September 2009

Apparently Deaf people can't dance. I know my own efforts on the dance floor constitute clenched fists and a white man's overbite - but do we really need mechanical assistance to keep in time to the rhythm? One person seems to think so - they've invented vibrating shoes. No, really. Vibrating shoes.

I wonder if Marlee Matlin used vibrating shoes on Dancing With The Stars? By the way, that's a reminder - MARLEE MATLIN is going to be on See Hear this week...

Back to the vibrating shoes - let us know if you're thinking of buying a pair, at the usual address.
